    I am going to teach the alphabet this year because I will have younger students. Do you go in order? If not, what order do you go in? :confused:

    I used to go in order until last year, then I went in the order READ WELL used. When I get my Storytown stuff, I'll be going in the order it suggests. Right now, I couldnt' tell you just what order that is.

    Personally I tend to teach the alphabet more holistically. I don't do a letter a week or anything like that. If I have a curriculum that lends itself to a letter a week, then I use that in conjunction with the teaching of the entire alphabet.

    I've done a letter a week and just the consonants, then vowels. This year it will probably be the first letter of everyone's names, then I'll go from there (with the first letters being S or J)

    I follow the sequence that Treasures uses. Most basal type reading programs teach the letters in the order of frequency. Our first 4 letters are: Mm, Aa, Ss, and Pp. By this point the kids can start blending.

    We use Trophies, and I believe that our sequence is the same as little317 above...M, A, S, and P....with these 4 letters, they can begin to read short words. I have seen other teachers go in order, so if you don't have a curriculum to follow, I think it is a matter of preference. Good luck! :)
